The Emails

Posted on December 29, 2008 at 12:34pm 0 Comments

So here is a followup to those emails I sent out to the Wine Spectator 100 Greatest cheese list, as I tryed to begin to set my vendor list of suppliers for the new cheese shop in Acadiana



The email read:



Subject: Interested in your Cheese‏

The Inspiration

Posted on November 15, 2008 at 10:27am 2 Comments

So I am shopping for cheese at Lafayette, La's Fresh Market. Low and behold I catch sight of the Sept issue of Wine Spectator and right on the cover is "100 Great Cheeses". I read thru the articles on cheese and begin to search for the cheeses in the markets cheese case. Funny, I can't seem to find but a couple of these "100 Great Cheeses".



I go to a few other local grocery and… Continue

The Beginning

Posted on November 1, 2008 at 8:50am 6 Comments

Every story, every adventure, every day has to have a beginning. La Fromagerie d' Acadiana began with me having a crazy idea for a new cheese shop for the people of Acadiana.. Where they could come to sample, enjoy and buy the multitude of choices the fromage world can offer. Those choices that are not currently available at all, anywhere near here.



I guess the Pre-History of this idea dates back to my second foray into entrepreneurship, Of-the-month.com where I sold monthly clubs… Continue

I'm a boring, old world conservative American when it comes to cheese. Old yallah cheddars, some white cheddars, smoked cheddar. I don't go blue and Jarlsburp is not my favorite.

Did I say I liked Cheddar ... and philly cream cheese, now who wouldn't like philly.

I like the boursin pepper cheeses and herb cheeses based on philly.

Thanks for the invite to the cheese sessions.

SAY CHEESE ! As a chef I have worked with all types some I love others no. European cheese to me are true cheese our pallets are spoiled with western styles of cheeses that are purchased in our local markets .
Working with the Disney Company I was introduced to a wide variety . Dana I see you are in NEW IBERIA Parish
should have known with the Purple Green & Gold
Its Carnival Time Back Home wish I was there
Bon-Temps /
My favorite Cheeses would be Cherry Gourmandise , Gouda smoked kings choice ,Asiago ,
Cammbert ,Stilton I can go on and on
Boursin Herb I use in a lot of recipes that call for cream cheeses , I make a shiitake &crab cheese cake thats to die for or so I have been told
Right now I am unemployed I know the cost of these products one case of boursin costs about $ 40.00
in this market things are tight and cheese can be down right pricey . Ten years ago when things were better I would have jumped right in . until I get back to work I am up a bayou without a pushpole

Thanks for the invite Dana. I am unemployed, but awaiting 3 months of food stamps, so I can probably afford a block or two of cheese once it comes in. Can't afford wine, but I've got the whine to go with it! LMAO

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?

TED: David Sengeh: The sore problem of prosthetic limbs - David Sengeh (2014)

What drove David Sengeh to create a more comfortable prosthetic limb? He grew up in Sierra Leone, and too many of the people he loves are missing limbs after the brutal civil war there. When he noticed that people who had prosthetics weren’t actually wearing them, the TED Fellow set out to discover why — and to solve the problem with his team from the MIT Media Lab.
